Haunted Honeymoon

Story Behind The Song

I wrote 30 songs in 30 days - from 1/1/09 through 1/30/09. All my life I've written songs to 'get' something - a song in a movie, a pitch, etc. I wrote a song with Paul Williams a few years ago called 'Give' - about simply giving. Well, in December I had

Sitting in her mother's car
Looking out at all those stars
She always thought that love would last
But now it's fading in the past
Watching from an evergreen
The most beautiful girl he's ever seen
He sees her crying in the night
He wants to tell her it's alright
If he could only he could find a way
If she could only hear the vows he longed to say
That never made their wedding day
So won't you hold on darling
Some day soon...
We will have our haunted honeymoon

Their wedding was two weeks away
Getting ready for the big day
Pricing flowers and balloons
Laughing at some old cartoons
Then they heard knocking at the door
And he opened it to her old boyfriend's 44
And he fell down to the floor
But before his body left the room
He said wait for me
For our haunted honeymoon

You never know what life will bring
Funerals or wedding rings
Fancy clothes or empty drawers
Times of peace or raging wars
But getting back to the story here
Her life was slowing year to year
And when her time had come to pass
She finally let it go at last
Now he can almost smell her hair
'Cause where a door is closed it opens up somewhere
Now she sees him standing there
And they both walk down the isle in June
And finally have
Their haunted honeymoon
